Challenging, creative, competitive: these words describe the publications class which combines elements of graphic design, photography, journalism, and teamwork to create the school yearbook Shoreline and the Upper School newspaper The Hurricane. Using Adobe Creative Suite and Classroom in a Book, students learn the basics of Photoshop and InDesign as they create yearbook pages, write news articles, and take their own photographs. The course emphasizes strong writing, visual and graphic design skills as students interview subjects and explore their school through coverage of events, sports, classes, and organizations. Selling and designing advertisements that provide financial support for these publications is an integral part of the classroom experience. Attendance at the North Carolina Scholastic Media Summer Institute at UNC-Chapel Hill is an annual event.
